Windows 7 Tablets and Custom OEM UI’s – An Update
Searching the NET today, I came across an old article of the Windows 7 Team on the topic of TOUCH for Windows 7. It is a rather interesting article in that it details the touch feature in Windows 7. It even mentioned by an argument against my request for a touch-package a la “Origami Experience”Continue reading “Windows 7 Tablets and Custom OEM UI’s – An Update”
Windows 7 Tablets and Custom OEM UI’s
These past few weeks I was about to write MS off. It was all negative news, one after the other, it seemed there was no end in sight. But what do you know, Computex is turning out to be a success for the Windows platform for Tablets and Slates. OEMs are now showing next-in-line devicesContinue reading “Windows 7 Tablets and Custom OEM UI’s”
A Dude’s Dilemma in a Post Microsoft world
If we may believe the Anti-Microsoft camp, MS is dead, at least in the mobile device arena. See this past week the bickering between Google and Apple. Before, these two were hand-in-glove to see to the demise of MS (even Eric Schmidt was on the board of directors of Apple), now they are celebrating the exitContinue reading “A Dude’s Dilemma in a Post Microsoft world”
So Long Microsoft?
Ok, so it is official; Apple has passed Microsoft in Market Cap. In layman’s lingo, Apple is now more profitable than MS. Is this really so? Going Microsoft now the way of IBM of the 80’s? I think it will definitely happen if MS does not re-invent itself, and stop being a re-actionary companyContinue reading “So Long Microsoft?”
Enter The Nexus

On the iPAD and TabletPC – Huraah! A baby is born!!
Hello there iPAD, welcome to our world. You turned out uglier than we expected and you miss a lot attributes or shall I say appendages; and what an awful name your father gave you, I am sure you’re not proud of it, possibly you will change your own name when you mature.

Wake up Call
I was prompted today to vent my frustration with MS. Please find my MS feedback as below: Hi, I am an staunch MS supporter, defending popular opnion and FUDs about MS Products, but boy I am getting really pissed right now? I visited your MS Reader page today to see if you guys have anContinue reading “Wake up Call”
Well, here we go again! I bet some people will be thinking I am being paid by Microsoft to write this, but nothing could be further from the truth. We in the industry are noticing a certaing worrysome trend at the moment. Nobody says doing business is always fair, but men how low can some companiesContinue reading “Kill Microsoft!!!!!?”
Has School Become Too Structured?
If you take a look at the schools today, what is the real point of school? Is it to teach kids, or have teachers become out of control? Are kids too stressed to get the right grade to even learn? Here’s an example: a boy, let’s call him Fred, is so worried about getting anContinue reading “Has School Become Too Structured?”
How Long Can Movie Theaters Last?
I was at the movie theater the other day seeing Paul Blart: Mall Cop (which was okay, by the way…they tried to be a little too funny) and I was thinking: With media technology advancing quickly, how long can the traditional movie theater last? Can’t we just watch movies in our homes? I think the moviesContinue reading “How Long Can Movie Theaters Last?”
The Windows 7 Taskbar discussion
I don’t normally react to every garbage I come across on the Net, but these days a lot pseudo-intellectuals fill the great void of the Internet, and they spew a lot mis-information; a-la Apple’s Vista campaign with its trolls. However when someone like Paul Thurrott talks or comments on technology you want to stop andContinue reading “The Windows 7 Taskbar discussion”
